|Location and accuracy||The Dorothy and Dorice prospect is located in the SW1/4SE1/4 sec. 29, T. 1 N., R. 2 W., Fairbanks Meridian. This prospect is on the ridge south of Happy Creek at an elevation of about 1,180 feet. It is about 1.8 miles east of the top of Ester Dome. This prospect is included in locality 14 of Cobb (1972 [MF 410]).|
Geologic descriptionThis prospect consists of a vein striking N. 40 E. which has been explored by a shaft of unknown depth (Chapin, 1914 [B 592-J, p. 321-355]). Coarse grained, bladed stibnite occurs in float; some pieces are as much as 2 feet thick. (Joesting, 1942 [ATDM Pamph. 1]). Several trenches were bulldozed but the bedrock source of the stibnite was not found.
